Cecelia Ahern has the answer for that through this book. The Irish chick lit author who previously wrote the international success PS I love you tried to charm her readers again with her fourth book. Funnily, this book has several different titles in English for example: "There's no place like here" and "A place called here". Anyway, the Danish title that I wrote above translates to "A place nearby"
I must admit that Ms. Ahern has a powerful imagination...more
I really liked the concept of someone who hates it when things go missing. Who starts a missing persons agency and then goes missing herself to end up on the place where the missing things and persons go. I was very excited to read this book from Cecilia as I loved ps;i love you. But the beginning really bored...more

"Here" is where my small, blue, fragile toy kangaroo has now found shelter in, where those pens I've previously thought just went inside somewhere deep in my pants' pockets have probably nested about, where that Pokemon book I was dying to read when I was eleven had got teleported to, and where my white Conver...more
The premise is promising, about certain place containing missing people and missing things. But I just couldn't get it. I couldn't care the least towards the characters.... Okay, they're missing someone, so?
Okay, they're in the middle of nowhere and waiting to be found, so?
I think this would be a very great book if the characters were multi-dimensional and had some...I don't know, uniqueness? I don't even like the character's name, Sandy Shortt. Okay, that's trivial @_@ I...more

As a child, Sandy Shortt is obsessed by finding missing things, and as an adult turns this obsession into her vocation, looking for missing people.

In "There's No Place Like Here" we see an imaginative world where all missing things go. It felt like nowhere but really was somewhere. It was simply called 'Here'. We see the protagonist journeying her way through this world to truly find herself, while helping a few unlikely people on the way.
When I was at a book store a week ago there was a corner where they had piles of box sets of her books. Apparently she has written a new book very recently.
And that's when I noticed that she was the author of "P.S. I love you".
Which is a movie I enjoy very much watching. So, I have decided to give her book a shot.
To be frank, I don't know what I was expecting.
A romance? mystery? fiction? a combination of all those?
I just read the back cover and thought of all he...more

This is the book that had given from a friend of mine on my birthday, hoping that this book will accompany me along my final semester in University life. I regret to say that I just manage to read this book 2 years later, when I'm started my work life and yeah, its accompany me along the road from work to house and vice versa.
I got so many confusion while reading it and can't stop from guessing what are the ending, where is Donal actually, what happened to Jenny May , it excites me very well fr...more
The story is very interesting, it answers the question, where do all our missing things go? And while that is a fascinating realm to explore (which I think Ahern does pretty well), I was still left feeling a little sad/depressed about the whole concept. I'm a person who likes closure; there is a definite end to everything. But in her story, there really is no sense of closure, especially when it comes to the missing people. I couldn't help but feel...more
